WRNS-FM is an FM radio station located in Kinston, North Carolina in the United States.

Its format is a mixture of mainstream and classic country.[citation needed]

Broadcasting at 95.1 MHz, the station has a non-directional signal of 100,000 watts, that reaches "from the capital to the coast". The station has served Kinston and eastern North Carolina since the early 1960s, when it was WFTC-FM. At one time, it was the only country station in the area and had one of the highest market shares of any station.[1] Known for its generosity, the station has held a radiothon for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital annually for the past 5 years. The station is constantly ranked as the #1 station in its market by Arbitron.

The WRNS-FM transmitter antenna is located on WCTI-TV's tower north of Trenton, North Carolina. Studios are located in New Bern.
